Moring/Afternoon all,

What do you think would be the better option for performance, turbo application? A head with VVT and hydraulic lifters or a head with no VVT and bucket/shim setup. The car will be road legal so odd days warm up and test but not daily driven, and will compete in entry level time attack and track days.

The VW EA113 TFSI 2.0 16v head is DOHC with VVT and uses a hydraulic lifter and rocker arm.

The other available head is the 16v DOHC, this does not have VVT and runs the cam lobes directly to the bucket/shim on top of the valve rather than hydraulic lifter and rocker arms.

Thanks for any input
